Project features

The upgrade is shown on the project map (PDF, 1.12 Mb) and includes:

  • Two lanes in each direction on the Pacific Highway
  • New traffic lights with pedestrian crossing facilities at the Ourimbah Street, Teralba Street and Walmsley Road intersections

The upgrade will improve traffic flow and travel times for around 29,000 motorists travelling this 1.6 kilometre section of highway each day. It will also improve safety for motorists, pedestrians and road users.
